Via Egypt Independent:

Protesters in Alexandria have reportedly stormed the Freedom and Justice Party headquarters and set it on fire, after Muslim brotherhood members and revolutionary activists began shouting matches following the Friday prayer in front of the Al-Qa’ed Ibrahim Mosque in Alexandria.

Political forces there have staged marches throughout the day to protest President Mohamed Morsy’s new constitutional declaration, which granted him unprecedented powers, gave immunity to the Constituent Assembly and the Shura Council, and made all of Morsy’s decisions since he took office legally unchallengeable.

These anti-Morsy marches coincided with pro-Morsy marches organized by the Muslim Brotherhood. When the two groups passed by each other, they began verbally sparring.

TEHRAN (FNA) — A group of Egyptian youths in a call via an internet social network called for demonstrations in front of the US Embassy in Cairo to take over the US compound if Washington vetoes the Palestinian bid for UN membership.

According to a report by Palestine al-Yawm (Palestine Today) news network, the young Egyptians have posted a request on their Facebook webpage and blasted Barack Obama’s speech after his presidency in Cairo in which the US President pledged a new approach towards Muslims.

They said that the threat by the Obama administration to veto the Palestinian bid for UN membership revealed the realities about Obama and the fact they “he is a liar and is no different with his predecessors in supporting Israel and blatant violation of the Arab nations’ rights”.

The Egyptian youths said the attack on the US embassy would serve as a strong message in response to the US hegemonic policies.

They further warned the US to refrain from vetoing the Palestinian bid, saying that such a move by the US would encourage violence in the world.
